Vegas or Bust - KA anthology Return to

Posted: 11-05-2014 at 20:17:08
I want to put this anthology on the Dropcards for the New York show so if you want in, better get to writing. The story goes like this, we, Kentuckiana Authors, are taking a bus ride to Vegas for a book fair. (yes, this is really being planned) On the way our bus runs out of gas, silly Atty forgot to fill up. And we’re stuck in the middle of Kansas with nothing but road. So we all go in groups of 3 to find the nearest gas station. Each chapter of this anthology will be what happens to you all on your walk to find gas. You are yourself in this book, you get to pick one other author from KA if you like, and if they give you permission, and there will be a second bus full of extra characters, should you feel the need to kill someone off. Your adventure should only last 4 hours, and it must end with your group meandering back to the bus. I will write the first, set-up chapter, and the last conclusion chapter. All members of KA must be alive to step on the bus at the end of the anthology. Each chapter needs to be 5K words or less. Your chapters need to be completed by January 15th. Contact your fellow authors if you want to write about them. Start your chapters when you start walking to find the gas station. Let me know if you want to write a chapter and who you are writing about. All chapters must be in 3rd person.

Hey Atty, This sounds like fun :) Count me in! If we pick another author, would we be co-writing the chapter? Or would we pick an author who isn't participating on their own?

I'm game. Sounds interesting.

Either way. If you both want to co-author or if they don't want to write their own that's fine. You'll have to message the author you want to use. You don't have to use another KA author. You can just take an extra from the second bus.

I want to go on that bus ride and I'm taking Becky Kelley with me.
